Sunday Supper At Sparrow says
Urban Harvest joins culinary forces with restaurateur Monica Pope and a coterie of notable Houston chefs to host “Sunday Supper at Sparrow,” a multi-course dinner that features a bounty of ingredients sourced from select responsible local farms.

The chefs — all of whom support Urban Harvest’s philosophy of encouraging community, good nutrition and sustainability through organic gardening — have pledged to impress guests with sophisticated combinations that highlight and enhance the ingredients’ natural flavors.

Urban Harvest’s Youth Education Program, the beneficiary of the event, explores healthy nutrition, food systems, native habitats and ecosystems through activities implemented in Houston-area schools and community centers. Additionally, complementary culinary programs through affiliate school gardens promote edible education and fight childhood obesity. Although supported by after school grants, parent associations, community groups and local businesses, the initiative is subsidized mostly by the efforts of Urban Harvest staff and active volunteers.

The dinner is sponsored by EdibleHouston, an independently owned bi-monthly publication that celebrates local, sustainable and seasonal culinary traditions and innovations.
